Boycotts are an American tradition too

Reader comment on item: CAIR's Assault on Paul Harvey

Submitted by George P. Wood (United States), Dec 24, 2003 at 11:45

Although I usually agree with Dr. Pipes's analysis, I thought this article a little much. Paul Harvey said something CAIR found offensive and CAIR basically threatened a boycott of his sponsors. Are boycotts a good idea? No. But they are an American tradition. Why fault CAIR for threatening one?
